Royal Life Centers at The Haven offers comprehensive drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs at every level of care. Once guests have completed our inpatient programs, we recommend continuing treatment in our 12-week aftercare. Continuing care after inpatient treatment also has a statistically significant impact on a person’s ability to maintain sobriety.

During each level of care, we offer individual and group therapy sessions to promote self-awareness, insight, and the development of essential coping skills, along with activities designed to keep you engaged and motivated.

What Is Aftercare?

Aftercare for substance abuse strives to help individuals become empowered by providing them with the necessary skills to effectively manage their addiction. Our aftercare programs offer a supportive environment that promotes growth through evidence-based therapies and relapse prevention techniques.

During treatment in aftercare, individuals will receive intensive support and education about addiction, including understanding triggers and how to cope with them. All of our aftercare programs emphasize positive reinforcement and goal setting to ensure lasting recovery. 

We offer aftercare services such as 12-step and alternative recovery support meetings, sober living options, job placement assistance, and other wellness activities. Additionally, we extend access to resources for families to support their recovery journeys.

Our long-term goal is to create lasting sobriety for each individual, so they can live the life they deserve. By providing the tools and support needed to remain sober, Royal Life Centers is committed to empowering individuals in their recovery journey. 

Aftercare Services at Royal Life Centers

Royal Life Centers at Sound Recovery, our outpatient facility, offers 12 weeks of comprehensive aftercare services for those seeking to continue their time in treatment. These programs, designed as a step down from inpatient care, are best suited for guests who have been medically cleared and no longer require 24/7 monitoring.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Lasting four weeks, our partial hospitalization program (PHP) is the first of three stages within our 12-week program, offering a structured, less restrictive form of addiction treatment. During PHP, guests attended two three-hour sessions of group therapy on Monday through Friday and one three-hour group on Saturday.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

After PHP, guests transition into 8-weeks of our intensive outpatient program (IOP) as they begin re-acclimating themselves to the community. At this point in treatment, evidence-based research supports the notion that an individual’s desire for sobriety outweighs their desire for substance use. With that in mind, we guide and encourage our guests as they develop the self-motivation techniques needed to establish healthy social and cognitive skills.

Guests at the IOP level of care complete two 4-week phases. In phase 1 of IOP, the transitional phase from PHP, guests attend one three-hour group therapy session, five days a week (Mon-Fri). In phase two of IOP, group therapy is held for three hours a day, three days a week (Mon-Fri).

Frequently Asked Questions
About Aftercare

To help you gain a better understanding of what aftercare is, we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions.

If you have any questions about alcohol addiction treatment at Royal Life Centers, call us at 888-568-5998.

Why choose Royal Life Centers?

Royal Life Centers provides world-class holistic addiction treatment. We are a dual-accredited, full-service drug and alcohol detox and treatment facility network committed to treating substance use disorders in the safest, most effective way possible— from detox to outpatient. We always put the guest first, hire only the most qualified staff, and maintain top-notch facilities.

How long is each program at Royal Life Centers?

The length of treatment varies by individual. In general, detox services last 4 days or 8 days. Residential inpatient starts at 14 days and can be extended to 30 days. Our 12 week aftercare program is 12 weeks (about 3 months). Outpatient care is a customizable time frame. For this reason, guests can choose to be in outpatient for an undetermined amount of time, ranging from a couple of weeks up to one year.

What is your approach to aftercare?

At Royal Life Centers, we developed a step-down program that enables guests to claim more autonomy with each “step down” into a lesser level of care. The beginning stages of aftercare offer a more prominent connection to medical professionals for the treatment of co-occurring disorders and to ensure current medications are working effectively. Intensive therapy is also required more frequently than the next step down. 

Each step down provides more freedom and greater responsibility. Guests seamlessly transition through our 12 week program and can continue receiving support and clinical guidance on an outpatient level. This step mirrors attending therapy sessions outside of treatment.

What if my loved one refuses treatment?

It is important to us at Royal that guests play an active role in each decision that impacts their recovery. We are not a lock-down facility which means each guest who comes to our treatment centers is doing so because they want to recover. It is a requirement to be admitted at Royal, for each individual to confirm that he or she is choosing recovery.

Most individuals who are not open to treatment display what is called “willfull ignorance,” described by Wiktionary as “a decision in bad faith to avoid becoming informed about something so as to avoid having to make undesirable decisions that such information might prompt.” In layman’s terms, willfully ignorant individuals are not ready for change.

We do not find it effective to force someone into treatment, those who are ready to learn and change will be willing to do so. This prerogative has kept our community focused on recovery, support, and forward motion.

What if I don't want to do more treatment after detox or inpatient?

We will make sure case management has set you up with a solid plan, so that you are able to have a system of support in the transition back to complete independence.

We always recommend continuing care at least on an outpatient level, because we don’t believe 30 days is enough time to undo the affects of years of alcohol or drug abuse. Despite this, we want your success no matter what you choose.

After completing our inpatient treatment programs, our therapists and case managers collaborate with guests to build a custom aftercare plan, with support groups and meetings local to your area. Guests also receive a list of psychologists or psychiatrists close to home in addition to other programs that can provide accountability. In doing so, you can continue to receive support during your transition from treatment to everyday life.

This aftercare plan is created for guests who are completing any of our treatment programs and do not want to enroll in the next step of our continuum. We also provide an aftercare plan for every guest who completes our full continuum at Royal. We do this because we want your continued success and happiness in recovery. Feeling supported in early recovery is crucial.
